Why isn't tallness a recognised disability?
Had a bit of a lie in today, still feeling sniffly and sleep appeared to be coming easy so I thought Id embrace it. Once I was up I had a proper explore of town, with all the skiing over the next 5 days this was my best chance and I had a spring in my step after stocking up on Earl Grey and Shortbread. As I am on my own this time there will be no limit on the shortbreads per sitting quota. Queenstown is awesome. I went on a Gondala (or Gonnnneedala as I amusingly pronounced it to myself) upto to the Skyline place that has great views, a resturant and a Luge track. Unfortunately due to the icey conditions there wasn't to be any Luging today. I was also disappointed to find out that Luging wasn't spitting on people from a great height, it really would have been a great spot for it as well. After purchasing some ski goggles and gloves I hopped into a Sports Bar as there was BBall on the tv, its the NBA Finals dontchaknow and its very exciting. Luckily it was empty and I was able to drink in solitary without feeling like too much of a loser and the kiwi and fish combo went down a treat too. It was then time to mong about in the common room and make an effort with my extended family for the next 8 days. The Auzzie I derided previously is actually ok but seriously insane. The other Auzzie is not ok and seriously insane, im looking to avoid contact with him as I overheard him saying "in Queensland, if you want people f*cked up then im the guy you call". There was a nice northern couple who were friendly, as most northerners are and they had awesome accents, as most northerns do, apart from Brummies obviously. Everyone seems to be either a ski instructor or just here to ski for the season so im surrounded by pro's and hopefully I will earn their respect after a ski related broken bone or two.
